I don’t know about you, but once I find my go-to beauty products that work well for me, I don’t question them! Okay, maybe if there are special sales for similar products, I may give them a try… but otherwise, I pretty much stick with what I find works for me to stay on the safe side. With that said, here are 10 beauty products on my repurchase list! 🙂
1. Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser
There are so many overpriced primers out there that surprisingly do not compare to this one, which can be purchased for just around $7 at Ulta! It’s insane! I love how this smooth this stuff makes my face. It actually smooths out fine lines and diminishes pores to create a flawless finish, as advertised. In addition to this affordable primer, I’m also a fan of the e.l.f. ones, as the application and effect I get from using it are both sort of similar.
2. BECCA Cosmetics Ultimate Coverage Complexion Foundation
This has been my favourite foundation for a while now! It offers really great coverage, especially on bad skin days. On good skin days, it makes my face look even smoother! The only thing I am on the fence about is the fact that it’s not matte — I personally do not like dewy skin on me (and I get naturally dewy regardless of what kind of make-up I wear anyway), so I always have to find products that make my skin matte. This has been the only foundation I’ve used for the past year but I am still in search for a foundation with a matte finish that actually stays matte all day long. Any recommendations are welcome! 😉
3. NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray
I swear by this matte finish spray! I don’t know what it is in there that makes my face matte since it sprays out wet like water, but it works really well with my BECCA foundation to keep my skin under oil/dew control all-day long. I do have to touch up if it’s a long day, but for the most part, it does help to keep my skin under oil control.
4. NARS Laguna/Orgasm Blush/Bronzer Duo
I used to use the dupe version of this exact blush/bronzer set by e.l.f. because it is so much cheaper, but think the NARS one is worth the extra splurge. I’ve noticed that if I don’t invest in a quality blush/bronzer, it doesn’t apply as evenly. I’m still not entirely sure why, and used to think it was maybe because I wasn’t using a good enough brush, but changing the blush/bronzer seemed to help remedy the problem.
5. e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit
I’ve been using this eyebrow kit for years and have no complaints! The best part? It’s only $3! If I want lighter brows to match with my lighter hair in the summer, I go with the light powder, and in the winter when I want my eyebrows to pop, I use the darker gel side. The best part about this is that it lasts forever — I think one has lasted me a good 6+ months of nearly everyday use.
6. Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Perfume
I’ve definitely experimented with different perfumes, and this one has by far been my favorite! It’s a great scent for all-year wear and I never get enough of it 🙂
7. Suave Dry Shampoo for Color-Treated Hair
This has been my holy grail ever since I went “bronde” and was told to not wash my hair everyday! At first, the thought grossed me out, but I quickly got comfortable. Now, I dread the days I actually have to full-on wash my hair in the shower! This dry shampoo keeps my hair looking fresh for a good 2-3 days without any oil build-up. Again, this product is very affordable for around $5 tops.
8. LORAC Pro Palette
Ever since a friend introduced this eyeshadow palette to me, I’ve never looked back! I love that it has the perfect colors for the everyday neutral or smokey eyes. If I could only choose one eyeshadow palette to use for the rest of my life, it’d be this one!
9. Chanel Hydra Beauty Creme Moisturizer
I have been using this moisturizer on rotate with extra virgin coconut oil since my college days. While it’s a bit on the pricey side, it’s totally worth the splurge. The moisturizer is extremely rich and has a very enticing scent. My favorite part is that it doesn’t leave my skin oily or clog my pores after application. I just wish it had SPF for day use!
10. Rose Lip Balm
My lips are dry pretty much year-round, which totally sucks. Luckily, this lip balm has been pretty good at keeping the peeling under control and allows for a nice application of lipstick or any lip color of my choice. I’ll usually put some on before I go to bed and in the morning before I apply any lip color. One of these can last me up to a year and a little bit goes a long way! I got mine from Bath & Body Works a while ago but now it looks like they sell it at Urban Outfitters. There is nothing more unattractive and painful than lipstick over chapped lips… so this one’s a must!
